Kudos for Kapiʻolani’s Laure Burke, Mānoa’s David Chappell and Hilo’s Matthew Howell and Jean Ippolito.

Kapiʻolani Assistant Professor Laure Burke’s paper “Improving Retention of First-Year Native Hawaiian Students: A Case Study of a Community College” was selected for presentation at the Eighth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities to be held at UCLA. This conference serves as a focal point for new ideas and new practices in humanities research and teaching.

David Chappell, Mānoa associate professor, presented “Envisioning the Pacific: Dynamic Rim and Empty Void, or Sea of Islands and Littoral Frontier?” at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in San Diego, Calif.

Matthew Howell, Hilo assistant professor, was selected as 1 of 17 international conductors who participated in the May 2010 California Conductor’s Institute, which involved an internship with the Bakersfield Symphony under the direction of three of the nation’s leading conductors.

Hilo Associate Professor Jean Ippolito’s paper, “Parody and Appropriation: European Art Traditions in the Recent Digital Media Art of China,” was accepted for presentation at the International Arts in Society Conference in Sydney, Australia. She will also conduct additional research on this topic on a Research Corporation of the University of Hawaiʻi research relations grant in China.
